HistoryIn 1947 the “Conservative West Africa Committee” was formed and was originally a link between High Commissions in West African countries and the Conservative Party. News of political and commercial developments was provided to the committee by members, businesses and visiting Africans.In 1995, the committee with the full support of the Conservative Central Office expanded its area of interest to include other sub-Saharan countries. As a result, individuals and companies with Eastern and Southern African connections were invited to join. In 1997, it was decided that the Committee should become more commercial in orientation and embrace the whole of Africa, thus reflecting the sweeping political and economic changes taking place on the continent as a whole.In 2012 the committee, recognising that the group now attracted a wider audience and those from across the political spectrum changed its name to become the “Westminster Africa Business Group”.
